Covid-19 Vaccinations, what you need to know

With Covid-19 vaccinations being ramped up across Ireland, it is difficult to keep up with latest revelations.

Pamela Logan, Director of Pharmacy Services at the IPU has recently introduced her fifth article to the series titled “Covid-19 Vaccinations, what we know so far”. Pamela addresses the “effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines, i.e. how well the vaccine performs in the real world” as well as the four Covid-19 vaccinations currently in use. In the article we learn of four upcoming vaccines, how they will be administered as well as potential side effects.
